ovvero Hyperkalemic Periodic Paralysis, patologia equina troppo spesso sottovalutata dagli allevatori.
“Hyperkalemic Periodic Paralysis, commonly known as HYPP, has been widely spread throughout the equine industry over the last several years. This heritable disease is caused by a genetic defect that has been found through research to trace back to the great American Quarter Horse stallion, Impressive.”
“The AQHA does not require horses to be tested, they just “recommend” it. I think all breed registries should do what the government of Canada has done, and require that any horse carrying HYPP be gelded or spayed, and all remaining horses be tested. They are wiping out a disease in a single generation, and I commend them for these efforts.”
